Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF)
The Wolf Ridge Organic Farm is an immersive classroom where thousands of students each year get hands-on class experience learning about crucial issues like water quality, pollinator health, and soil fertility. The food grown, harvested, and processed on our farm feeds the Wolf Ridge dining hall and surrounding communities in the Arrowhead Region. The farm also mentors beginning farmers in small-scale vegetable production and farm entrepreneurship.
The Wolf Ridge organic farm is currently accepting WWOOF applicants for the 2023 season. Vegetables produced in 2023 will go to a CSA, the Finland Co-op, and the Finland Farmers Market. We are also working with a co-op of farms on the North Shore to grow 40,000 tree seedlings in support of climate-adapted species for our region.
How to Apply
1. Submit a visit request using the WWOOF platform.
2. Fill out a Wolf Ridge Seasonal Staff – Organic Farm Application.
